if they just don't take up the case? >> well, then same-sex marriage essentially becomes law in california and it was about the referendum. most court watchers would say defensive marriage act is the most likely of all the challenges to take up. the thinking they want to weigh in on a question dealing with what role the federal government can play when it comes to the issue of marriage because and we can't say this enough, throughout history, marriage is regulated by the states so, you know, important thing to consider there. >> and just quickly, also, joe, when it comes to the defensive marriage act, it is important for people to know if the court decides to adjudicate, it does not mean that that's the law of the land, that people can start getting married any which way they want to. correct? >> no. it means they're taking it up. they still have a decision that's down the road. there's a variety of different ways they could decide on doma. you know, they don't have to decide on equal protection grounds but the narrow question of benefits or certain benefits or certain tax breaks that marr
of marriage act. and also, california's proposition-8 and how's this for a backdrop? in washington state, thousands of gay couples got married on sunday. and the new year promises the same for those in maryland and maine when their new state laws take effect. right now, same-sex marriage is legal in nine states and washington, but it's either banned or not recognized in more than 30 states and just not recognized at all by federal law either. that's the defense of marriage act. a high court has been split on nearly every major decision. john roberts has also been a wild card on occasion, so as you can imagine, past opinions of these people have become a bit of a window perhaps to what future decisions may yield and this has critics and supporters of gay marriage on edge and waiting and that includes evan wils wilson, the director of freedom to marry or god father of the gay marriage movement. so, i hear people asking the question of either people who are before or against the issue of gay marriage. you must be excited that the supreme court is finally going to take this up. some people a
